St. Paul, MN ( --- Catholic diocese records have been released of a predator priest who has worked in the Northland.

Documents released indicate Father Richard Jeub had a history of sexual relations with underage girls and adult women.

One incident, he denied, involved a young girl.

A separate civil trial determined he did not engage in abusive behavior with another young woman.

Upon evaluation and treatment, a psychiatrist determined that Jeub had sexual relationships with a nun he was counseling, a blind woman he was caring for and a wife of a patient in a hospital in which he was chaplain.

He resigned from parish ministry in June 2002.

Jeub continued to exercise ministry as a lector and communion minister at a Duluth Diocese parish in Deerwood, Minnesota until at least 2009.

The Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests, also known as SNAP urges anyone who has been a victim of sex abuse by a priest to contact authorities.
